Release Information

The following is taken from Istat

Data are disseminated in millions of Euro and show: total dispatches (at f.o.b. values); total arrivals (at c.i.f. values); and the trade balance. The foreign trade surveys are realized on the basis of the special trade system.

The data cover all goods which add to, or subtract from, the resources of a country as a result of their movement into or out of the country. Concerning the types of goods to be included or excluded, international UN and Eurostat definitions and concepts are followed.

As in the other European countries, two systems of data collection coexisted i.e. Extra-stats and Intrastat.

The Extra-EU trade data are compiled on the basis of customs declarations. The Intra-EU trade data (INTRASTAT) are derived from surveys, the coverage of which as adopted by ISTAT is total. The survey is carried out as follows: VAT payees with annual Intra-EU commercial receipts greater than 150,000 Euro (Intra-EU Arrivals) or 200,000 Euro (Intra-EU Dispatches) are obliged to provide information on a monthly basis; all the other cases report annually.

The data are preliminary when first released and are subject to revision. The data become final within one year after the end of the reference year and are published in the annual "Commercio estero e attività internazionali delle imprese".

Timeliness is within one month after the end of the reference month for the Extra-EU trade data and within 7 weeks after the end of the reference month for the Intra-EU trade data.
